News and Resources
CELT is planning two workshops this week targeted primarily at Winona faculty. One is on dealing with virtual attendance and the other is on trauma-informed teaching.
The Learning Management System (LMS) Task Force has finalized its proposed migration schedule for all university programs from Blackboard and Engage to Canvas. Meetings with program directors who manage the first set of program courses selected for migration in August will occur this week. “Migration” is the initial process of copying a course from Blackboard or Engage and importing it into Canvas.
Exams and quizzes have been part of higher education for centuries. It’s not easy to break old habits. But they have well-known weaknesses that make them hard to recommend in a pandemic situation.
The Learning Management System (LMS) Task Force met with the Canvas implementation team on July 13 to officially kick off our relationship and make plans for a fall rollout.

It’s not fall yet, but we want to make sure you have all of the resources you need to be prepared for a potentially very strange fall semester. At CELT, the part of that package we think we can help with is thinking through a face-to-face course that might involve some students attending remotely, students completing assignments remotely, minimizing large groups, and planning for scenarios where in-person meetings are no longer possible.
